Just want to know if anyone is running these in a B16b. Seen some people say the piston to valve clearance is okay and some say it’s not. Any info would be great.

I had them in a B18C with a slight head skim and they were fine if that helps...

Cheers! Did you use a standard gasket and what were the gains like? Where they much noticeable?

Im looking at using the same Tuner 2 Skunk2 cams myself come rebuild time next winter in my B16B. t3gav and firebass (na5hy if you got them), any issues with them? What was your setup head wise? Stage 2 cams, which valve springs etc did you you use?

Also for those that have used them, thoughts on performance? My car is used for track days, so Im concerned with a good power band, not just peak power. How do these feel mid range, and did they loose power for you down low?

well i had the pro setup , i didnt like the mid range , what i figured it was only for drag use , cz this is what i wanted though cz i was drag then, but when i was cruising it was a dead car goin in highway, my setup then in the head was supertech springs and wider valves plus skunk2 cam gears, oem clearance and 13:0 piston, the worst think was that those cams they wore off very fast , i just strongly thing that this is cams is for turbo drag car, i was NA ,
